BARD TO TEARS: What a piece of work is man . . .

Reply Mon 5 Jan, 2004 05:22 pm
What a piece of work is a man,
How noble in reason
How infinite in faculties,
In form and moving
How express and admirable,
In action how like an angel,
In apprehension how like a god.

It's one the bard's better efforts, for sure, setanta.

On a related note (or not), it was Emerson who wrote:

Man is a god in ruins.
